Aki praying to Jesus to send an angel who will give us a baby.
According to his teachers, he is the Kuya of the class. Aki loves it when his teachers ask him to help or teach his classmates. Classmates and teachers call him Kuya Aki or Aki-man.
This made me smile. I saw this Manila paper in Aki’s school. The kids were asked what they do inside a mall/hospital/grocery etc.
Aki kept asking for an armadillo mango. I did not understand what he meant until Ate gave him this mango.
Aki asked me to bring these dragon eggs to work and not to tell anyone about them.
Aki has 2 pets. A free-roaming turtle who name changes everytime we see him which is like once a month.
Some of Aki’s current obsessions
Rock DJ by Robin Williams. Here he is headbanging while we were waiting in a parking lot for a friend
He loves swimming and is getting better at it! The other day, out of the blue, he blurted, “I miss Tita Maggie so much”. Thanks for letting us swim in your pool, Mags.
He also calls our van, Iron Hide, the weapons specialist of the Autobots. He believes that our van is a real Transformer.
We are slowly weaning him from Transformers because he is trying to copy the fight scenes. We recently introduces him to Little Rascals and he loves it!
His favorite book is Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site which according to my online sources, has been in the NY bestseller list for more than 100 weeks.
Lastly, his newest obsessions are germs. If you don’t cover your mouth or if you do but using your hands, get ready because Aki will quickly tell you that this is the right way to do it. More about that in my future posts.
